    This flower is called Foxglove or Digitalis purpurea. It comes in many colours and is gorgeous in the garden. It really is a biannual vs a perennial as the plant tends to bloom every second year.

    this looks pretty much like what grow in my garden like a weed. I think they are a form of hollyhock but not sure. you could take a cutting to your local garden nursery and see if they know what it is.
